What customers say about "Key Specs"
360Fly HD 360° Video Camera
  • No stitching of images thus no seams or strange missing parts like competitors
  • The technology is pretty cool, and when I was able to get a video to view the quality was pretty good for a "fish-eye".
  • The resolution is very good and the microphone has a good recording
  • If you just need recording, and a reasonable (tomlow) resolution, you’d be happy.
  • Image quality poor unless there’s lots of light and even then there is quite a bit of purple fringing apparent
GoPro Fusion
  • Bought this camera so I could start recording track runs in my Dodge Challenger Hellcat in 360 degree video. The video quality is great (Along w/audio and the mobile-editing app)
  • I love the picture and video quality of this camera.
  • Highly recommend it for anyone looking for a 360 camera. Best video quality on a 360 camera I have seen yet.
  • The Overcapture feature was the winning feature on this camera along with the 5.2k resolution (so you can zoom and overcapture).
  • Video quality is very bad: grainy, with blurred focus. Daytime recordings with cloudy skies. Replayed on the phone.

What customers say about "Imaging"
360Fly HD 360° Video Camera
  • The video file format is mp4. I just dragged and dropped in into my chrome browser. It looked like video shot with a fisheye lens pointing up. No surprise there.
  • I will admit it took some time getting use to the video format You have to watch the videos in the Mobile Application, Desktop Player,YouTube, Facebook or their own 360fly Web player to really experience the videos.
  • Not as good of images as my GoPro but god for quick videos. Best part is, you can set it in the middle of a room and get video of everyone in the room without having to man the camera.
  • Bad video quality overall, slow, overheats fast. bad distortion . I winder if 4K is actually better or just has a bigger image
  • The image is ok. the functions ok, But If the recording image doesn't let you rec directly down from your eye line because the architecture.
GoPro Fusion
  • The picture quality is excellent. It is even easier to take still photos from video shot than before. I am very glad about this purchase.
  • The stitching is awesome, easy and brainless.
  • Multi axis stabilization (software based stabilization) is very impressive, and holds the camera angle in place
  • If you want new kind of photos and tinyplanet, this is the camera you're looking for, the app is easy to use and you can make 360 photos easily

What customers say about "Features"
360Fly HD 360° Video Camera
  • Compatible with GoPro mounts and other accessories so if you already own them you can use them with this without extra cost
  • It is also possible to record under water, but I didn't try that. You can use Google Cardboard to view the results through your cell phone or the more expensive Oculus Rift goggles. It makes for an interesting experience.
  • The camera is dustproof, shockproof, and is water resistant to 1ATM (34 feet) when the microphone plug is used. I tested it by throwing it into my pool which is about 9 or 10 feet deep.
  • Battery seems to go quick and no way to add extra battery
  • No LCD or other way to easily change settings without a smartphone or tablet. Also only works with certain phones and tablets listed on website.
  • 360Fly support said that I should buy the waterproof dive housing before taking it snorkeling so I did. It fogged up in about 3 seconds and started leaking water within 5 minutes.
GoPro Fusion
  • The remote interface on the phone to control the camera is great
  • Battery life is good; usually doesn't run out of battery during a day's worth of casual use. Probably had the battery run down over an 8 hour period with about an hour's worth of clips taken
  • It is waterproof without any additional cases
  • voice recognition is pretty accurate, does not get a lot of false positives. Of course your friends will want to talk over you when you try to use voice commands
  • Wake time is slow, takes about 10-15 seconds to start up, so it is not super convenient for the unexpected, but when it is powered on, it will start recording immediately
  • Requires a lot of hard drive space on your computer, I would recommend having about 4 TB available to sandbox around with this camera. Premiere will need more swap disk space than normal

What customers say about "Connectivity"
360Fly HD 360° Video Camera
  • The latest update solved problems and it's nice to have the option to connect to the PC for continuous recording without having to download the videos every time the memory in the camera gets full.
  • It connects to your smart phone and you can dictate how it records and monitor what the camera is viewing.
  • The charging station, on the other hand, connects magnetically, so you just sit it on top for charging. Thankfully, the folks at 360fly decided to use a normal USB cable, so I always have cables at the ready.
  • The most annoying parts of the camera I found was having to disable the Wi-Fi on your device to connect to it to control it, which is necessary to use the time-lapse and POV features.
  • The app does not properly connect to the camera, have to go into Settings and manually cycle the WiFi connection off and back on again before the camera shows up properly in the app.
GoPro Fusion
  • With the right computer/phone, this is an amazing camera.
  • The phone editing option has a cool interface.
  • I've tried several USB-C cords/different chargers, and it refuses to work. It also won't connect to my computer. I'm going to return this and get a Hero 6 camera.
  • 128GB (64G x2) will only give you about 2h40min of recording time at 3k resolution.
  • Video can be saved neither to phone nor laptop. The phone app was giving me error with no explanation each time I was trying to save a clip.
